Full day of brick furnace use! May 09, 09

Both of my sons and I spent the day firing the furnace to melt down loads of aluminum for some practice casting. Its the hottest fire we have had in the furnace yet.

Here is the aluminum we have melted down. It took about 20 to 30 min of the fire at full go to melt the scraps of aluminum down. We went thru about 3-4 wheelbarrows of firewood also.
We need to sift the rocks out of the sand in the future for a casting with finer details.

The happy results of an afternoon of effort.
